Spring Quinoa Salad

I've been meaning to encorporate more amazing quinoa into my diet, so I decided to make a quinoa salad for lunch. The veggies add beautiful colour, and the added tahini lemon dressing I made, it tasted delicious!


1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
2 green onions
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 orange pepper
1 handful of almonds
sprinkle of pumpkin seeds
sprinkle of sunflower seeds
1/2 a cucumber


1/4 of a cup of tahini
lemon suice to taste
warm water
garlic powder


Bring water to boil, add quinoa, bring back to a boil and cook for about 15 minutes
In the mean time, chop veggies, make dressing!
Transfer cooked quinoa to a large bowl, and mix in veggies.
Add dressing to taste.
